A Pentecost Message from the Bishop

A Pentecost Message from the Bishop

Dear Friends in Christ:

Grace and peace to you as we enter a new Season of the Church year and of our journey together.The Season of Easter now ends, but the work of bearing witness to Christ's Resurrection continues. Jesus sends us, as He was sent, to continue His work of reconciliation in the world. We are partners with God in God's mission.

Pentecost comes to remind us of this truth about ourselves and our true work. The Holy Spirit empowers each of us to do that work, and all of us to do it together. The gift of the Spirit creates the Church, a community of people living ever-deepening relationships of love and trust with Christ, and with each other. May God help us in this holy Season to be more faithfully attentive to those relationships and to that work.

I pray that God will bless you this Pentecost, and that together we will more truly be the Church that God calls us to be.

Yours in the power of the Spirit,

+Barry
